Motive Television PLC reports that it has completed the development and testing of its Content Express platform for the global maritime market.

In August 2014, Motive Television Services Limited, a subsidiary of the parent company, signed a deal with Greek satellite TV provider Twin Peak. Since 2003, Twin Peak has provided satellite-based telecom services and broadcast infrastructure to the maritime industry and currently provides a Video on Demand (VOD) service for on-board, in-cabin viewing of film and TV content.

The agreement between the two companies will see content delivered to TVs and mobile devices on board via satellite feed and a single server, at “a significantly lower cost than other solutions currently on the market”, according to Motive.

Twin Peak’s current VOD service is delivered via Eutelsat’s Hot Bird constellation, which covers Europe, the Middle East and North Africa. The new joint product with Motive is scheduled for an initial deployment on Greek ferries during Q1 2015, but plans are in place for the service to be taken global. 

“The completion of this new application of Content Express and its extension to the maritime market opens up a huge global opportunity for Motive,” says Leonard M Fertig, CEO of Motive.

“We are excited to see the first deployment about six months after starting the project.”
